Two die after ceiling collapse at Cambodia shoe factory

A ceiling collapse at a factory making Asics trainers in Cambodia killed two workers yesterday, fuelling concerns about workplace safety following last month's industrial disaster in Bangladesh. Local rescue teams, helped by soldiers, scrambled to search through the rubble of the fallen structure, which appeared to have been on a mezzanine level laden with crates of trainers.
